Make sure that the ftp server is running by starting telnet session at the console and trying
#ftp localhost

If this works then the ftp server is running. If not check /etc/services to see if it should be running. Any lines that are comments (start with a #) will not start.
If you want to use domain names instead of ip addresses, you will have to add them to the hosts files on the workstations, or create a local dns server.
Otherwise if is the Unix system:


Should work.
